Nintendo Switch on Sale at Amazon Without Prime Requirement
 

Amazon lifts Prime membership requirement for Nintendo Switch consoles.

Amazon has the Nintendo Switch in stock since last Friday. No online store had the standalone Switch console in stock that long since the release of the Switch in March. As predicted, Amazon has removed the Prime membership requirement on the Nintendo Switch.

The $299.99 Nintendo Switch with Gray Joy-Con and the $299.99 Nintendo Switch with Neon Joy-Con are now open for purchase for everyone. In addition to the two Nintendo Switch consoles, Amazon also offers the $379.99 Nintendo Switch Super Mario Odyssey Edition. This special edition will be released on October 27 and is also does not require Prime.

Nintendo has warned that the Switch console will be hard to find during the Holiday shopping season. We will remind Holiday shoppers in November that there was a time in early October where the Nintendo Switch was in stock for a week on Amazon.com.You can buy it now and store it until you need it.

We do not expect noteworthy Nintendo Switch Black Friday deals as supply is expected to be lower and the demand rising sharply later this year. 

The Nintendo Switch is in stock online at GameStop and at Walmart according to the latest Nintendo Switch Stock report. Many physical stores are also reported to have inventory.

To find other hot Holiday gifts in stock online you can download The Tracker app to receive notification on your smartphone. Right now users of the Tracker app hunt Luvabella dolls, L.O.L. Big Surprise! and Hatchimals Surprise.

You can also now get in stock notifications in real-time on Twitter at the new @TheTrackerApp account.

The Nintendo Switch launched on March 3, 2017. Nintendo has sold 4.70 million Nintendo Switch consoles in the first three months, the video game maker revealed on July 26. This week Nintendo announced that about 100 Nintendo Switch games from independent developers are coming to the popular console.

The Nintendo Switch will be in short supply during the Holiday season. Experts have pointed out that Nintendo has not increased the sales forecast during the last earnings call despite rising demand, especially in Japan. Nintendo has repeated in a recent statement to ramp up the Nintendo Switch production for the upcoming Holiday season. On top of that, Nintendo America President Reggie Fils-Aime has warned again in September that the company might not be able to make enough Nintendo Switch consoles.
